being planned for that evening since the boys and leaders will be
holding their annual planning campout that weekend. Alumni/adults
are encouraged to participate and we have room on the property for
any adults or alumni who might want to camp overnight . Events planned

Tent/Museum/Slideshow, Woggle making workshop. Suggestions are also
asking that everyone who receives this email and knows past members
that have not been recently active to please contact them and tell
them if they want to be kept advised about this event, they can
send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org along with their preferred
email address and their current phone number. I will be happy to
add them to a “60th only” mailing list.

to the scout hut (5742 East Cherokee Drive, Canton, 30115), or emailed
